are maria theresa cumar and angela wry. angela how important is it for the president president to go outside the beltway to create change inside washington. >> public pressure because the president has got to continue to emphasize that we, the people, are the united states of america, not the divided states of america, right? at some point, we have to heed the public pressure. we have to heed the public out cry for what is needed to really move this country forward. >> you know, maria theresa, they view as cut from the same cloth. the administrative officials calls the same speeches two acts of the same play. does that meenl that we'll see the same focus we the people in the state of the union tomorrow night? >> i think what we saw in inauguration is him moving toward a progressive agenda. the fact that it's gone to the social media waves and people are really galvanizing behind it, you're going to see the exact same thingd tomorrow. whether she talks about the economy. it's a perfect time to talk about se kwesz trags and really talk about who are the people that are blocking the potential c
